    I'm surprised that The Fragile isn't much higher than that. Thanks, Kaito!

    I know this was posted a while ago but I have to call BS. If anything, Metal is finding the most creative ways to get their stuff out to the masses. Or at least finding the most efficient way to bail the water off this doomed vessel that is the music industry. Do you know who's album just cracked the billboard top 10? The fucking Melvins. As time passes I would put money on the fact that metal will be the last genre selling the most physical stuff. I mean, Katy Perry will always have more single sales and youtube views. But that doesn't steer the ship away from the iceberg. Just the nature of what heavy metal is and what the fans are, there will be a need for physical things, CD's, Vinyl, merch etc. The Hunting Party may not be doing well, but I'm sure it's not too far off pay from what everyone else is doing. There's yet to be an album to hit platinum this year and there may not even be one at all. My point is (before I completely derail my own train) is that everyone is sinking and heavy metal may not seem like it's doing well due to the niche nature of it, but in reality it will be the last ship to go under.

    The user Coldplay here on The LPA made a comment on the "dying" music industry a few weeks ago that really resonated with me:

    The music industry, be it any genre, isn't dying. What has happened is that the internet has opened an entirely new, expansive way to discover music in ways that you could never do without it. With this, people can find their own niche in music because it's that much easier to do so. Because of this, record sales are more spread out than they used to be (and piracy/YouTube), usually leaving not one album going multi-platinum (much) anymore. Underground artists are given such a better chance to thrive now.

    Thanks Kaito!!

    I'm surprised by Breaking Benjamin's sales. WANA and Phobia both went platinum, but only 1x platinum each. I thought Phobia would've been their best selling record... Diary of Jane and Breath were monster hits/singles.

    Either way, I'm glad the band is back - can't wait to hear some new material from Ben Burnley's new lineup.

    Yah, it's terrible... That 2014 is the worst year ever in the history of industrial music, probably a fall of over 30% compared to 2013, a decrease like never before.

    YEARLY TOTAL TOP 40 ALBUM SALES BREAKDOWN
    (Media Traffic Global Chart)

    2014 - 49 million so far (- 30%)
    2013 - 70 million (-7,1%)
    2012 - 77 million (-14,5%)
    2011 - 90,1 million (+9%)
    2010 - 82,7 million (-16,4%)
    2009 - 98,9 million (-0,3%)
    2008 - 99,2 million (-6%)
    2007 - 105,5 million (-2,3%)
    2006 - 108 million (-14,1%)
    2005 - 125,8 million (-11,6%)
    2004 - 142,3 million

    If we compare 2004 and 2013 we se a 50,8% sales decrease just in top 40 best selling albums. But If we compare 2013 and 2014 we se a 30% sales decrease just in top 40 best selling albums. Terrifying.
